I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me. Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.
Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department responds to the police actions happening in Ferguson.
Pretty scary that he doesn’t even recognize that this type of police mentality is a problem.
"Just do what I tell you."
He literally uses threats of death to stop people from exercising their right to remain silent and their right to refuse searches. Why is he still on the police force and not in jail? If there are good cops, why aren’t any of them arresting him for making death threats?
A police officer labels all police officers as violent terrorists who would be sent into a murderous rampage if someone doesn’t obey them, even though disobeying an officer includes exercising your constitutional right to remain silent or refuse a search.
If you hate when people assume that all police officers are evil, stop normalizing the actions of those who are evil.
Just had a discussion about rape with my coworkers.
They believe that if the victim cums, the act is no longer rape because the secretion “proves that they enjoy it.”
I wonder how many others believes this bullshit. What a misogynist world I live in.
Rape apologists believe shit that is harmful to all rape victims regardless of gender, but MRAs blame feminists for not caring about male rape victims.
#whyWEneedfeminism, no. 1,467:
"Christy Mack shouldn’t have fooled with a MMA fighter named ‘War Machine’—what did she expect to happen?"
On one side, we’re told—fear men that fit certain stereotypes, and if you don’t fear them, any damage you incur is your fault.
On the other side, when a woman *does* take this fear to heart, she is greeted with “Not All Men” and labeled an angry, man-hating bitch.
So which is it? Trust the man, and get flamed for stupidity, or fear the man, and get blamed for bigotry?
Cultural narratives of gender weave a labyrinthine minefield of confusion that none of us traverse without harm.
If you’re critical of the movement because they throw other oppressed groups under the bus, that’s completely reasonable. The problem is if you’re critical of the movement because they say that men have male privilege and refuse to coddle men’s feelings, because most of society is already critical of things that don’t please the privileged.
A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism.
